What is Agape Latte?


"Agape" is a Greek word for a kind of love that seeks nothing in return.

Agape Latte is a monthly event designed for students seeking to learn more about faith and religion in an inviting social environment. The first Tuesday of every month in Hillside Cafe at 8:30 pm, students are treated to free desserts, coffee, and an engaging discussion.

This series is sponsored by Campus Ministry and The Church in the 21st Century Center. For questions contact Karen Kiefer or call 617-552-6845.
